Default Question about Seat Belt Attach in Top

I don't have the plans for my finishing kit yet and would like to drill the holes (at least initial pilot holes) in the cabin top while I am filling / smoothing the interior surface. Once I smooth it over, I won't be able to see the solid resin area. I couldn't find a reference in the cabin top section of my manual. Is the hole simply drilled in the center of the round solid resin areas of the top or are there special measurements for these?

The plans call for a 5/16 hole centered on the hard point. Nothing special.

Default hard points

Yes, just center on the hard points. Shine a light behind one side of the cabin top and you will see it pretty clearly...

Thanks for the guidance. On my green top, the solid resin area is very obvious and has a significant depression surrounding it, hence the desire to fill it.
